Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will

The three topics give a complete idea of the book by giving a realistic portrayal of the fight between rich and poor, showing the power of strong loyal friends and their friendships, and the ways one can be a hero, no matter the cost. This novel is well written and revolutionary in the concept of realistic fiction that it used. The strengths of the novel are the realistic portrayal of the problems kids faced at the time, the realistic language, and narrated without adult bias. The weaknesses of novel was the mildly confusing ending, the unnecessary killing of Dallas to add drama, and the slight cliffhanger with what happened to the characters in the
The comparison of the version of the earlier Macbeth to the now murderous Macbeth is gut wrenching. A reader is really able to see and understand the consequences of going against one’s own moral compass through the reactions that Macbeth has to each of his own

The family's treacherous journey to Jefferson is filled with danger and excitement, yet Faulkner gives many doses of humor throughout the novel. The characters employ themselves in outrageous acts of irony, from Addie's rejection of her most devoted son, to Anse's concern with his false teeth instead of Addie's death, to Vardaman's calling his mother a fish. This irony would not have been evident if it were not for Faulkner's use of multiple narrators. Faulkner was enchanted by Freudian theories of psychology when he wrote this novel, and recounting the story through various perspectives allows the reader to understand each character's reaction. This enhanced the dark humor throughout the novel because the reader can see into each family member's thoughts on her death.

It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini is a spectacular story that I highly recommend to anyone dealing with depression or any other mental illness. Even if you don’t have any mental illnesses yourself, I would still encourage you to read this novel because Ned Vizzini will truly open your eyes on how mental illnesses can destroy people.

The way Vizzini is able to tell a story about mental illness in a way that’s not at all depressing is truly amazing.
The One-Eared Intellectual was very enjoyable for me because it was told through a child ’s eyes. Children have crazy, wild imaginations so at the beginning when the little girl says “In my town there lives a man with an enormous intellect and only one ear. When I was a little girl, I thought that the two things were connected, that giving up one ear was simply the price you had to pay to be that smart”. When I read those lines I found it to be humorous that she associated his intellect with his missing ear.
I am very happy that I got a chance to read this book because I probably would never get the chance to read it again. I may read another one of agatha christie 's books because I enjoyed this one so much but as I look her books that she has written, a lot of them are about murder so maybe not but i’ll just have to read and see. This book to me reminds me of the gameboard clue and how it sort of resembles it. So in overall i enjoyed this book and believe that it is a good read, I think everyone should get a chance to read this

(Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing.
